Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fort Frances District Curriculum
Students are required to take core academic courses in Math, Science, English, History and Social Studies, and World Languages. Each course is taught as its own subject, although there are many opportunities to integrate subjects so that students begin to understand how they are all connected. The English curriculum has been designed to teach reading and writing skills which students will use in other subjects with its focus on non-fiction analysis and informational writing strands.
In Math and Science, students learn fundamentals of problem-solving and inquiry. Students recognize theories and learn how to test them with precision and accuracy. They are taught to manipulate shapes and to conduct operations and functions with numbers, geometric shapes, and algebraic operants. This helps students develop a basis in mathematic and scientific reasoning that is used in many aspects of real life. In addition, the subject of technology has developed and math and science learning contribute to the understanding of how technology is developed and used in countless areas of life.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: The Pros and Cons of Advanced Placement Classes
Many institutions desire students with as many Advanced Placement courses as possible, and they want them to receive 4s and 5s on all exams. Other schools would rather have your expend your energies in courses relevant to a declared major and minor. For some, a Grade Point Average is their only concern. From here, it is important to evaluate whether taking AP Japanese would benefit you if you do not plan to use the language for your future career. Also, decide whether taking a heavy course load of AP classes prevents you from working and saving money (if that’s what you really want) or from participating in extracurricular activities that you really enjoy. Each decision is individual, so it is wise to choose what is best for you.
